The FCC just voted to end net neutrality. We can get Congress to overrule them.
The FCC just voted to gut net neutrality rules, letting Internet providers like Verizon and Comcast control what we can see and do online with new fees, throttling, and censorship. But we can still get Congress to stop this—by passing a “Resolution of Disapproval” to overturn the FCC vote. There’s a narrow window to make it happen. Call your legislators now.
We need One More Vote to save net neutrality in the Senate.
The FCC voted to end net neutrality rules, but Congress can overrule the FCC with the Congressional Review Act (CRA). Unlike a normal bill, the CRA only requires a simple majority in the Senate and House. Once we get the votes, we win. No filibuster. No procedural tricks. And we already have 50 of 51 votes needed to win the Senate. Click here to join the massive, Internet-wide day of action on February 27th.
Contact Congress now to show your support for net neutrality.
Below you’ll find a list of your state’s senators and representatives. The ones in green support net neutrality, so let them know you appreciate their support. The ones in red need to be convinced, so let them know how important this issue is to you. Then target the 49 undecided senators. Once we win the Senate, the fight moves to the House, where we need over 25 Republican votes to win. So make sure you tweet and call senators AND representatives!

What is net neutrality? Why does it matter? Watch these videos!
Net neutrality is the principle that Internet providers like Comcast & Verizon should not control what we see and do online. In 2015, startups, Internet freedom groups, and 3.7 million commenters won strong net neutrality rules from the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC). The rules prohibit Internet providers from blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization—”fast lanes” for sites that pay, and slow lanes for everyone else. Want to learn more? Watch these videos!
